4 Ways to Make Passive Income Online to Generate CASH (+ step-by-step tutorials)

In this video, I’m gonna provide you with
four proven methods, plus step-by-step instructions on how you can create passive income online. Personally, I, myself, generate over six figures
with a passive income every year, and I’m always looking for ways to grow this. One thing that I’ve noticed on YouTube is
that a lot of the videos surrounding passive income tend to discuss how to invest with
property and things like that to generate passive income. And while it’s fantastic advice to go and
purchase property and stocks to earn passive income, to do so, you’re going to need some
cold, hard liquid cash. That’s why today, I’m gonna be focusing on
sharing with you e-commerce business models that you could implement yourself to earn
passive income online, where you generate cash, which you can then later on use to invest
in things like property or stocks. The first three methods are suitable for people
even if they have a low budget. It doesn’t matter if you have a $100 or $1,000,
these methods will work for you. This is, of course, on the basis that you’re
willing to put in the work required to seek up these businesses, which will pay off in
the future. The last method that I’m gonna share with
you though, definitely requires an upfront investment, is probably gonna require at least
$500. But if you think that the model sounds exciting
and interesting and you have the money, then I strongly recommend it. Now, I want you to remember that passive income
is all about putting in the hard work now, so that you can reap the rewards in the future. One of the best quotes I’ve ever heard was
that you should do something today, that you will thank yourself for tomorrow. That is one of the best quotes I’ve ever heard
in relation to passive income. So, don’t just watch this video, pick a method
that I explain and then put it into action. So, let’s jump straight into it. Method number one, drop shipping on Amazon. Drop shipping is a great method to earn money
online. It isn’t passive in of itself, but with a
few tweaks, you can make it passive. Our subscribers here at Wholesale Ted already
know what drop shipping is, but I’ll explain it for those of you out there that don’t. Normally, when you open a store online, such
as opening a store on amazon.com, you need to purchase the products that you want to
sell in advance. And of course this makes sense, right? If you don’t have an inventory of products,
then what are you going to sell? And that’s a good question. Normally, if you don’t have an inventory of
products, then you have nothing to sell. But this is where drop shipping comes in. With drop shipping, wholesalers and manufacturers
let you list their products in your store without buying them in advance. These wholesalers and manufacturers are called
drop shippers. Then when a customer purchases an item from
you, you go to the manufacturer or the wholesaler and you purchase that one individual item,
and they will then ship it directly to the customer. So let’s take this Adventure Time mug as an
example. Let’s say that I was a supplier of this mug,
I might have 100 of them in stock, and I’m willing to sell them to resellers for $5 each. As a supplier for this mug, if I was a drop
shipper, I would be happy to let resellers list this mug in their store in advance without
purchasing it. Now let’s say that one of those resellers
were to sell this mug for $20. Well they would then come to me and purchase
it for $5, and I would ship it directly to their customer. They would get to keep the difference, which
in this case, it would be $15 in profit. I’m sure you can immediately see the benefits
of this model, namely that it’s largely risk-free because you don’t have to purchase any products
in advance. And we’ve actually got a free e-book, “How
to Make $10,000 A Month by Drop Shipping”. This e-book outlines the step-by-step instructions
that we recommend if you wanna start an Amazon drop shipping business. To download it, just simply click on the link
in the video description below. But as I said earlier, this method is not
in of itself passive because you still have to go and purchase the item from the drop
shipper individually when a customer orders it for you. But there is a simple solution to this, and
that is outsourcing. What I would recommend is that you get a virtual
assistant to help you fulfill the orders for you. Now, virtual assistants don’t have to be expensive. In fact you can actually go to OnlineJobs.ph,
and find a virtual assistant in the Philippines who will charge between $4 to $5 an hour. I’ve got a link on how you can find OnlineJobs.ph
in the video description below. Initially, when you’re getting all this sorted,
you’ll probably want to fulfill orders for yourself, until you know that you’ve got a
steady stream of sales coming in. But if you follow the instructions that we
outline in our free e-book, “How to Make $10,000 A Month Online by Drop Shipping”, you’ll very
quickly develop strong sales, and then you can look at hiring a virtual assistant to
spend one to two hours a day fulfilling orders for you. In the e-book, we teach specifically how to
drop ship on amazon.com. The reason why we picked amazon.com is because
of the fact that Amazon already has millions of eager customers coming to its website every
day. The one caveat for this though is that you’re
gonna have to use American drop shippers if you want to sell on amazon.com. We explain how to find them in our free e-book. Method number two, drop shipping in your own
e-commerce store. I’ve got a free video which outlines how to
drop ship in your own e-commerce store that you create. To watch the video, simply click on the link
that I’ve included in the video description below. In that video, I teach you how to start a
business, whereby you find Chinese suppliers on AliExpress to drop ship items in the store
that you create on your own website. Now obviously, this is very similar to the
first method, except instead of selling on amazon.com using American suppliers, you’re
selling in your own store using Chinese supplies. And this is very important for three reasons. Firstly, in this method, you’re going to have
to create your own store and your own website, which is obviously a lot more effort. Luckily, this can be done very cheaply using
WordPress. I’ve got a free step-by-step video tutorial,
which I’ve included a link to and the video description below. Secondly, you are going to need to do more
upfront marketing to get people into your store. See, when you sell on amazon.com, you need
to do minimal marketing because of the fact that Amazon already has interested buyers
coming to its website. But if you’re gonna open your own store, then
you’re gonna have to attract people yourself. Luckily, there is a great free and passive
way to do this, and that is called search engine optimization. Search engine optimization, which is otherwise
known as SEO, is a great method whereby you optimize a particular page or website for
a particular keyword or phrase that you know that people will be searching for using search
engines like Google. Now actually I’m pretty experienced in search
engine optimization, and I even give talks around the world on the subject. One of my specialties is YouTube search engine
optimization. If you go to the YouTube search bar and type
in “Jungle Scout Review”, the video I created will be at the top of the results. There are lots of reasons for this. For example, I put this keyword at the start
of my video title. This is just one of the many, many ways that
I optimized this video for this keyword. Because of the fact that my video is at the
top of the search engine results for this keyword, it means that it brings in passive
viewers and traffic. Now imagine if you had a website whereby you
were selling this Adventure Time mug. Think about how powerful it would be if you
optimized your product page for the key word, Adventure Time mug in the Google search engine. And every time someone searched for the phrase,
“Adventure Time mug”, your website was the number one result. Think about how many sales you’d be getting
without having to do any active marketing. And that is the power of search engine optimization. It is passive. But, there’s something else that you need
to keep in mind as well. Because of the fact that you’re selling on
your store, it means that you are building an asset. Yes, you can sell websites that make money. Think of a website like a piece of digital
property. Websites tend to sell for two-and-a-half times
the yearly income. So if you have a drop shipping website that’s
making you $1,000 a month, you can generally sell that for about $30,000. Just like with the first method, it isn’t
passive right off the bat, but once you start making consistent sales, you can hire a virtual
assistant to fulfill the orders for you. If you are not sure whether you wanna drop
ship on amazon.com, or in your own store using AliExpress, I’ve actually got a great video
that outlines the pros and cons, and I’ve included a link to this video in the video
description below. Method number three, selling products with
affiliate marketing. This is not a method that we teach here at
Wholesale Ted, but it’s something that we do and it works. Affiliate marketing is pretty simple. Someone has a product, and they’re willing
to pay a commission cut if you are able to successfully sell their product. As an affiliate, you can be rewarded for creating
blog posts, videos and other pieces of content where you discuss and promote that item. I recommend that if you want to follow this
method though, that you only recommend products that you know are good and that you know have
helped you. For example, in the video that I discussed
earlier, the Jungle Scout Review, I have an affiliate link in that video description. Anytime someone clicks on that link and makes
a purchase, I get a commission cut on that sale. And, of course, because of the fact that I
have optimized it for the search engines, it is bringing in passive traffic, which means
that it’s making passive money. However, we only promote products that are
top of the line and that we personally use. And we are also painfully honest. In that video review of Jungle Scout, I was
not shy at letting people know about the different types of glitches. And I also didn’t just recommend everybody
purchase the most expensive subscription, because I knew that it was not the best thing
for our viewers. If you just try to sell and promote anything,
then your viewers will know that you just wanna make money off of them. Instead, if you’re gonna become an affiliate
for a product, you should only promote products that have helped you and that you know will
help others. Remember to be honest. If you’re curious about how to get started
in affiliate marketing, there is a really great free e-book that you should download. It is “The Five-Step Formula to Making $10,000
A Month Online. To get a link on how you can download that
free e-book, simple click on it in the video description below. And finally, method number four, private label
product creation using the Amazon FBA program. This method is unique. Because the first three methods are focused
on selling someone else’s product and not your own. For this method, you create a product and
you sell it and see it. This method isn’t as scary as it sounds. In fact, I’ve got a free video which you can
watch, which teaches you how to pick a product to private label and sell on the Amazon FBA
program. To watch this video, simply click on the link
that I’ve included in the video description below. And there are three steps involved with this
method. Step number one, identify a product which
has a ton of demand on Amazon, but low seller competition. For example, in the video that I just discussed,
I found a product on there that would have been great to sell at the time. And that was dog grooming clippers. Step number two, find a manufacturer, usually
one located in China, who will manufacture this item for you. This way you have your own unique product
and label. This is why it is called private labeling. You are selling your own product under your
own label, and not someone else’s. And step number three, ship the products into
one of the Amazon FBA warehouses, and let Amazon FBA program fulfill the orders for
you. See, this is the secret sauce of the method,
and it’s what makes it truly passive. Amazon have a great program called Fulfilled
by Amazon, which of course is otherwise known as Amazon FBA. If your products are in the Amazon FBA warehouse,
and you are connected with their program, then when someone purchases an item from you
on amazon.com, they will go into the warehouse, find the item and ship it out to the customer. Because Amazon are fulfilling the orders for
you, this makes it a hands-off passive income business model. So those are my four online selling business
models that you could implement today to start earning passive online income. Thanks for watching this video. If you liked it, I’d appreciate if you gave
it a thumbs up and subscribe to Wholesale Ted. And I’ll see you on the next video. Male: Hi there, and thanks for watching this

  11. Bryangth1 says:

    Hi, is dropshipping from ebay to amazon legal if I ask my supplier to put my company name and the client name on the package ?

  12. oncenterline says:

    I love your videos and I started up with Commercify when you collaborated with Ricky Mataka. I have used FB ads and have had a ton of traffic, but literally only ONE sale since June 2016 to November 2016. I have not spent much time with developing SEO, but with the customers that have been to my site…I feel like I should have sold more than one item. My prices are on par with other sellers, and sometimes cheaper too. I think maybe my niche is over saturated perhaps? I have no idea, but I am ready to pull the plug. I have listened to others help me with my site and ads too and still no success. Are there any gurus who can look at my site and help me figure out why I am not selling?? Thanks!

  13. madeline vicioso says:

    I want to build a website next week with dropshipped items from AliExpress. Can I trust that my customers won't get an invoice from AliExpress if I specify on the notes that the item is dropshipped and not to include invoice, promotional items etc ??

  14. madeline vicioso says:

    for the person in the Phillipeans to fulfill the orders. would you need to give them access to your amazon account? wouldn't they steal your account? or potencially become your competitors? :/

  32. The Tag Market says:

    Sarah, please… watched a few of your videos now – and you make all this sound so easy and exciting. You say say at one point that the dropshopper sells a mug to the reseller for $5, who has sold it for £20 to an online customer "giving you a profit of £15".

    This is patent nonsense. You do not, at any point, mention the COST OF SALE. The reseller has fees to pay – if via a portal like Amazon or eBay, there are their charges, as well as the payment gateway fee. And it is likely the mug got attention because of paid online advetising, so there's a marketing cost too.

    Additionally, if the dropshipper is selling to resellers for $5, then a 4x markup would be highly unusual. Most resellers (all desperately competing for the sale) would advertise far lower prices – and the online customer (knowing that the mug is the same thing – regardless of where it's purchased) will look for the poor fool who's selling at the lowest price).

    Any business is hard work, and to succeeed takes investment and acumen. A tiny handful of people succeed. Nielsen research back in 2010 showed that roughly 85% of online startup retailers fail in their first year, and of the remaining 15%, about half these fail within 2 years. That means that more than 9 out of 10 online ventures do not make it to year 3.

    Dropshipping has had its day for resellers – it's far too competitive and because most people who try this don't know the difference between SALES and PROFITS, they have the illusion that if they sell stuff they are "in business". Warren Buffet has two rules for running a business:-

    1. Don't lose money.
    2. Don't disobey the first rule.

  36. MrMusicgenius says:

    I'm beginner and I want to get into the drops hopping businesses. it would be better for me to get a drop shipper in the US cuz the product would arrive faster to the customer and after a while once there is high demand it would be better to buy in bulk and send it through amazon fba? what do you recommend?

  37. antithetical 1 says:

    I don't know how you can smile so much and inform so quickly! Glad to have found such a positive, informative teacher! I am still researching drop shipping to make sure I start off on the right foot (second day into it), I plan on reading your e-book after watching most of your videos and diving into it! I am losing my job due to arthritis problems, but now have something to look forward to, being my own boss! I don't care if I only make a living wage, it would be worth it to be free of the penny pinching, job slashing corporate model where profits trump people every time. Thank you!

    I thought Drop-Shipping was against Amazon policy?

  46. Metheus says:

    Cold hard liquid cash…

  47. Ernst Mayer says:

    Dropshipping from China takes weeks to reach you customers. Nobody wants to wait for such a long time, therefore you will not have happy customers.
    Fast delivery only works when the selling dropshipping company is located in the same country as your customers. As soon as your suppliers are located in the the same market as your customers, your prices usually cannot compete with companies who have the same products in their warehouses. They buy big lots and get much lower prices.

    I don't get it. How should this method work?

    Hi Sarah,

    I am passionate about coffee and have been since I was a little girl. I see that Shopify has a new product called Dripshipper which dropships coffee beans in your own logo on it.

    I would like to get into this business but have never done Dropshipping before, in fact, this would be my very first online business.

    Is selling coffee online a good business to go into? Or do you think I should rather start out with a better product before I get into this?
